He was always preaching or teaching about the Lord, racing or life lessons. Billy was a servant of God who wanted to ensure all those he met knew the love of Jesus Christ and would pray with anyone, no matter where he was or what he was doing.
Billy discovered his passion for racing at early age, working alongside his father and his Uncle Ray, which led him to start his own racing shop, Cagle Racing Automotive. He was also the crew chief for Ed Gibbons Racing. His passion, talent and fun-loving personality quickly made him a household name in the dirt track world. Billy loved race days, his family and friends, God, and his peanut M&Ms.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Mary Elizabeth Cagle; his father, John Wesley Cagle, Sr.; his brother, John Wesley Cagle, Jr.; his sister-in-law, Dian Cagle; and his nephews, John W.
